located a deceased male behind the u-haul truck outside of the building. at this time it's undetermined how the male is deceased or what his involvement is with the u-haul or the business. >> reporter: now in addition to that broken glass, it appears that the ignition switch may have been tampered with which would indicate that the thuk had been stolen. we're working to confirm that. the police are running the plates on the truck to see if it was legitimately rented from u-haul or whether it was stolen. at the point the alameda county coroner just arrived, that means they'll take away the body. the body found bheen the u-haul truck, between the truck and the patio of life chiropractic. this is an industrial part of hayward but sit a well-traveled part between hayward and the san mateo bridge. there's generally lots of traffic through here. this traffic itself has not been impacted because the investigation is in the parking lot of that chiropractic college. working to find out more about

chris? good morning. >> reporter: we just finished talking with a lieutenant who is involved in the investigation from hayward pd and says it appears that this was a robbery attempt. that the u-haul truck that was backed up into the kitchen area was backed up because there were people that were going to steal something from inside. the person who was found dead at the rear of the u-haul truck may have been involved in this robbery. it's likely that there's at least another person who is involved. we can tell you that the coroner's office just took off with the body of that person who was found dead here at life chiropractic college. all of this happen right around 2:00 this morning when two employees of the college who work in the kitchen area, they were getting in to set up for the day and they discovered that the u-haul was backed up and smash into the glass and that there was glass on the ground. they called police. and as soon as police arrived on the seen, they discovered the body of that person. right now we are trying to determine -- or rather they're
trying to determine whether or not that u-haul was legitimately rented which would lead them directly to the people involved or if it was stolen as a way to get transportation here to life college. again we did just talk with the lieutenant and we will have a sound for you a little bit later on as we continue our coverage during the "today" show. chris sanchez, "today in the bay". new this morning, authorities pulled a stolen car from underwater near antioch. these are pictures from the contra costa fire protection district. officials say the car was found submerged near a ramp leading into the water. no one was inside. it is time to check out our microclimate forecast. as we give you a live look outside at the golden gate bridge. and yes, we are an area of microclimate. however, no matter where you are this weekend, you should be feeling pretty good about the weather you're going the see. >> whenever the wind blouse from
